Osoyoos Larose 2012

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaOne of the best young Osoyoos Larose we have tasted. The blend is 50/24/13/9/4 merlot, cabernet sauvignon, petit verdot, cabernet franc and malbec. Look for a peppery, cassis, vanilla, smoky, black cherry, light cedar, licorice and tobacco aromas with a meaty note. The attack is full and round with a fresh, elegant, well balanced palate with some youthful fine-grained tannins. Coffee, peppery, smoky, savoury, black olive, cassis, vanilla, cedar and cranberry flavours dominate the palate. A bigger, richer effort here with balanced tannins for aging over the next 5-7 years.
